Ever since I was a young girl I loved art. As a teen I started working with oil paints, painting still life pictures. One birthday my husband bought a camera for me, nothing very expensive just a good Canon camera. This camera didn’t have a thousand lenses to interchange or high speed framing, it was just something to get me started in the world of photography. He mentioned he wanted me to try my hand at photography stating, “You have an eye for art, let’s see what you can do with a camera.” I laughed at first thinking this isn’t anything like painting, but I soon found out photography did indeed take on the form of art. Now, I am constintly yelling, “Stop” as we are driving along on vacations wanting to “Catch the Moment” on film. Photography has now become one of my favorite pastimes. I still haven’t changed my camera, although I’m sure if I did it would most likely produce better photos. But right now I’m just an amateur that has a good eye and a very patient husband.

I had to laugh. My husband knows that I will be calling for many stops along the way when on vacation to catch "just another shot." Once you have the camera "bug" there is no medicine to cure it. Haha! Nice photos!

Wow, breath taken beautiful! I loved your comment "your camera is your new paint brush. I have said that numerous times to my husband, which btw also purchased my first camera for me stating the same thing your husband did to you. I love seeing the beauty of life through the lens of my camera, it is amazing!

Canon makes great cameras and the lenses are interchangeable from film to digital and vice verse. You are going to like you new Canon.
